Hawaii statehood announced from Honolulu...

Item # 673631

March 12, 1959

HONOLULU STAR BULLETIN, Hawaii, March 12, 1959

* Best Hawaii statehood issue 
* Terrific for display

This would be "the" displayable issue to own recognizing Hawaii becoming the 50th state of the Union.
The huge banner headline across the top of the front page--in red ink--reads: "STATEHOOD" with an 8 1/2 by 6 inch color print of an American flag with 50 stars, the 50th highlighted to mark the historic event.  The image and banner headline take nearly the entire top half of the front page, with a smaller heading: "House Sends Bill to Ike".  Additional front page coverage includes "Sirens, Bells Herald Statehood Arrival" and "First Class Citizens Now" stretched over photos of various Hawaiians "citizens" of the United States.
The inside contains additional images and reports too numerous to mention.
Complete with both sections totaling 36 pages, a few minor margin tears, very nice condition. An issue perfect for display with this dramatic front page and being from the capital of the state.
